Daily chess puzzle: Check Mate #276

March 30, 2017

Another puzzle from Dragoslav Andric’s 1981 book “Matni Udar”.

White to play and mate Black


Bukenstram v Nielson, 1963



At first, I couldn’t work out “who was to play and win”- the book doesn’t say, and I tried to find a Black to play and win. On switching to White to play and win, the problem isn’t too hard: 1 Qg7+! Ng7[] 2 Rf8+ and after 2..Kh7[], 3 Nf6+ both picks up the Q and mates.
